1The "Net Asset Value" (NAV) of all ETFs is determined at the close of each business day, and represents the value of one share of the fund; it is calculated by taking the total assets of the fund, subtracting total liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The NAV is not necessarily the same as the ETF 's intraday trading value. Investors should not expect to buy or sell ETF shares at NAV.

(“Think ETF’s”) or other VanEck affiliates (together “VanEck”).

VanEck constructs and issues the investment funds but does not give any financial advice to private investors or accept client funds. VanEck provides financial services (e.g. financial advice) only to professional clients according to the detailed definition in the Terms and Conditions of this website. For questions regarding investing or trading please contact your advisor, brokerage or bank. If you have technical questions regarding our investment funds, please contact us.

An investment in the promoted investment funds may only be made based on the investment fund’s official sales prospectus, the relevant supplement and KIID and will be subject to the terms and conditions contained therein.

You can lose money by investing in the Funds. The value of the investments may go up or down and the investor may not get back the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance and should not be the sole factor of consideration when selecting a product. Any investment in a fund should be part of an overall investment program, not a complete program. An investor should consider investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the investment carefully before investing.

Investment fund investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Investors should consult the prospectus and key investor information document (“KIID”) before subscribing to any fund. The prospectus, the key investor information documents and the financial reports can be obtained free of charge from this website and upon request from the funds’ registered office and the offices of all local information agents. The documents, except for KIIDs, are only available in English and Swiss German and for ETFs issued by Think ETF’s also in Dutch.

Performance quoted represents past performance. Current performance may be lower or higher than average annual returns shown. Discrete performance shows 12 month performance to the most recent Quarter end for each of the last 5yrs where available. E.g. '1st year' shows the most recent of these 12-month periods and '2nd year' shows the previous 12 month period and so on. Performance data is displayed on a Net Asset Value basis, in Base Currency terms, with net income reinvested, net of fees. Brokerage or transaction fees will apply. Investment return and the principal value of an investment will fluctuate. Shares may be worth more or less than their original cost when redeemed.

The sales prospectus and KIID contain this and other information. Please read the sales prospectus and KIID carefully before investing.
